1974 Triumph Spitfire with a 300cu Chevrolet V6. Bowtie block, 23* aluminum heads, cross ram intake (late 80's, early 90's NASCAR & ASA pieces). 2X3 tube chassis car with four link rear suspension. Runs mid 11 second quarter mile times with out any other power adders. GM 4speed over drive auto. Dodge 8 3/4" rear axle. I built it all from the ground up. Only original Spitfire parts are some body panels. Completely street legal and other then the hood scoop, the perfect sleeper.
